Ai Weiwei refers to the exhibit ”Art of Change: New Directions from China” taking part in the Hayward Gallery in London from Sept. 7th to Dec. 9th
He left Beijing for the Olympics, “not as a boycott – as some have said,” he explained. “I don’t want to have to talk about it all the time. I am much more interested in what is going to happen to [the stadium] after the Games. I would like it to become a place where people like to go, bring their children or can come for mass weddings, or maybe mass divorces or, best of all, to have barbecues together.’

Journalist Wen Tao has been posting some ridiculously cute photos of Ai Weiwei with his son. This one he called Gentle Father, or 慈父.
